Chemwest Particle Removal Systems

Chemwest Particle Removal Systems, distributed by SALEM Flat Glass & Mirror, are manufactured in four sizes ranging from 50gpm to 400gpm and are designed to remove glass fines from cutting fluids. Particle removal systems are designed to remove 99.9% of suspended solids from cutting fluid used for cutting and grinding glass panels in the glass fabrication industry. Considered to be a green alternative in the manufacturing process, these particle removal systems automate and recirculate an aqueous coolant.

The system is used for removing particulate and fines associated with the glass cutting and beveling. Fines are removed from the coolant stream by using a coolant and flocculent technology. Swarf is removed from the coolant delivery stream allowing an increased feed rate, improved edge quality, reduced downtime, and an overall lower cost of ownership.


  • Faster cutting speeds
  • Extended diamond tool life
  • Reduced volume of liquid effluent
  • Separation of glass fines from the liquid which can then be treated as solid waste
  • Eliminates the need to run large centrifuge motors 24 hours/day just to keep fluids clean for reduced energy consumption
